A new multi-shot Taser stun gun which can shock three people without being reloaded has been unveiled.

The X3 “electronic control device” comes with improved safety features, manufacturer Taser International said.

The company demonstrated the weapon on three employees who volunteered to be shot at its headquarters in Scottsdale, Arizona.

A video of the launch posted on YouTube showed the trio being floored by three successive shots in front of a crowd of staff.

Older Tasers, which are used by 14,200 law enforcement agencies throughout the US, have to be reloaded after one shot.
